Hike to the Blaueishütte

The hike to the Blaueishütte was the real target, so we visited the Alps in August last year.
As you may have noticed from previous posts, we are not big walkers.
A little bit here and a bit of a walk there … but please just not too long and not too strenuous.

Well, yes. The hike to Blaueishütte may not be as long
– 12 km there and back –
but it’s very, very tiring.
It takes about 2 1/2 – 3 hours (the latter number for untrained)
until it reaches its destination.
Not a long time and mileage are also feasible. Says one.
However, one must expect that the way you rises nearly vertically. Yes. Hard to believe. But so it is.
The road is extremely steep and at the end, the final height differences (total 1150m) rises to stairs.
Not just any stairs … bah … that would be too simple, but high stairs. Tedious cut into the rock stairs.

In order to briefly mention:
Approximately in half of the hike you will reach the Schärtenalm
where you can relax and strengthen the first time typically Bavarian dishes
with snacks and a drink.

Later, you can reach the Blaueishütte, there also exist the possibility to taste with Bavarian specialties.

Those who want more can go a little further to the Blaueisgletscher.
Have to be a beautiful but exhausting way. How you can read, we did not go there.

We have begun after a goulash soup the way back  to reach exhausted the parking at the end.

Conclusion: At each step, I thought, never again!
And yet it was so beautiful and
the feeling of having accomplished something so great
that we will take a walk again this year.

CornerView – five things about me

Five things about me.
Hmm … you knows that? When you consider what you could talk about themselves,
and not think of anything interesting? Yes?
Well, we are already a couple, or three …

I’ll try it anyway. With five unimportant things about me. 😉

::

> I hate it to stand in front of the camera. I’m pretty cramped. More cramped can not be.
My daughter always says to me, now laughing please. And I say, I do all the time.
So much to do so.

> I love to plan trips.  Alone to planning is like a separate trip for me.
I surf through the internet for hours in search of excursions and overnight accommodations.
Compare prices and think about what goal is compatible with a dog.
And what photos I can shoot there.
Important questions that need answering. In this way I have traveled countless countries.

> Recently my friends said to me, they are amazed at how good it tastes by me, even though I’m such a chaotic cook.
So my friends do not just mean only the look of the kitchen after cooking.
I suppose it is not as accurate as the number of milliliters or indicated grams.
I also cook when I cook for friends, rarely before, I cook while they are there and we are all sitting in my kitchen.
I cook messed up the main, advantages and dessert, sometimes here, sometimes there … but in the end everything is ready on time.

> I love dogs.
That’s what you have noticed.
As a child I wanted a dog. But I did not get one.
But I had a rabbit, but it rans away sometime, and I had two budgies, to which my mother took care of.
For dogs I have, however, always a heart. I have addressed wherever it was possible.
But when traveling, no matter where I’d want to take them all with me.
In Chile, they are often guarded at night my tent and made ​​noise about everything, they felt responsible.
Because I had made ​​friends with them before.

> I’m addicted to Instagram. Honest.
At first I found it not so exciting, but after I’ve settled in, there is no end.
There is so much to discover, to see … such excellent photographers.

::

That’s me.  Once … just for you … with an uninhibited smile.

CornerView – sights / special places of interest

I have a soft spot for a little poetic-inspired posts. 😉
Not really, it depends. The last time and this time.

The theme is: One place you will not find in a guidebook.
The entire town where I live, a Bavarian village without highlights, isn’t in any travel guide.
You will find him, no question, if you pass by chance.
For example, if you departure from the highway because you run out of gas and you need a gas station
Or your navigation has piloted you in the wrong direction.
That there are different ways … all coincidences.

But then if you’re already there, you can also look around, and maybe you will find
… when you are at the right time at the right place …
as a secret spot as I found recently.
A coincidence, even though I live here.
It was the perfect place at the right time.

May

So finally. A short, long review of our month of May.
In short words, long with many photos.
Every month I feel like I’ve barely shot a picture.
Every month is the sweat on my forehead, what shall I show you anyway?
And at the end of each month I can’t decide because there are yet more photos than I had thought.
It does not matter. Here is our selection. Have fun with it.
And oh yes, how was your month of May?

CornerView – Europe or somewhere else

The last time I missed the CornerView. I’m sorry, friends.
So I will summarize the issue of Europe and somewhere else. Because somehow it fits …
Somewhere in Europe there is a place …
where the sun sets with a special shine.
Where the sun warms the skin,
the birds start chirping
and crickets chirping their evening song as soon as the darkness dawns.
A place where it’s quiet and you can still feel the existence. (oh now I’m pathetic ;)).
Well anyway, there are special places.
It can be everywhere and nowhere, everyone has his own place.
For the one there it is no special place
for the other there it is the heaven on earth.
Mine is somewhere in between. :)
